Great 100 Nurses 2009|
Click to listen to the taped broadcast.
I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”
Texas Health hospitals have dominated the “Great 100 Nurses” list for years, and 2009 is no exception. Texas Health nurses captured 29 of the 100 coveted slots this year — almost a third of the recognized nurses in the region. That’s more than any other hospital or health system in North Texas.
The Dallas-Fort Worth “Great 100 Nurses” award is sponsored by the Texas Nurses Association and Dallas-Fort Worth Nurse Executives. It honors registered nurses who exemplify excellence in the art and science of nursing, providing much-needed recognition for some of our most valued care givers.
Eight Texas Health hospitals had nurses make the list this year, including Texas Health hospitals in Arlington, Dallas, Plano, Kaufman, Fort Worth, Cleburne, Hurst-Euless-Bedford, and Southwest Fort Worth.
Texas Health HEB had six nurses named to the Great 100 list, and three of those work on the same, 13-bed oncology unit. What a testament to the compassionate cancer care provided at Texas Health HEB.
Great nurses are truly the heart of quality care, and I am proud of the standard of excellence set by Texas Health nurses. I want to thank them for their commitment to provide high standards of personal and professional care that is reflected in their hard work and dedication displayed each and every day to the patients we are privileged to serve.
For Texas Health Resources and its faith-based family of hospitals, Texas Health Presbyterian, Texas Health Harris Methodist, and Texas Health Arlington Memorial, I’m Doug Hawthorne.
